Toothbrush Tuesday: some of you may remember this from Stories, but I really thought I needed to post it again. In the interests of good dental hygiene... #toyboxing #heman #castlegrayskull #castlegram #mastersoftheuniverse #motu #hemantoothbrush #toothbrush #noveltytoothbrush #dentist #hemanandthemastersoftheuniverse #ihavethepower #vintage #powersword #vintagetoys #mattel #vintageheman
Street Fighter Saturday with Chun-Li! The Chinese Interpol officer and martial arts expert seeking revenge against M. Bison for the death of her father is arguably the most iconic Street Fighter character. And she has good reason to be. Debuting in Street Fighter II in 1992, Chun-Li is the first female fighter of any fighting game franchise.

Street Fighter Saturday with M. Bison! Master of Evil, Dictator and would-be world leader, M. Bison is so evil it actually energises him with ‘Psycho Power’. I think I had a former boss who had that too... M. Bison is the head of the Shadaloo crime syndicate and debuted in Street Fighter II in 1992. Famously, his original name in Japan was Vega. That went to the Spanish fighter while the Mike Tyson parody name M. Bison went to this character, (the original Bison becoming taking the Spanish fighter’s name, Balrog. All clear?)The meaning of the “M” has remained a mystery though he has been referred to as Master Bison and Mighty Bison. The Street Fighter live action film may be pretty awful but Raúl Julia’s M. Bison is a joy to watch.

Street Fighter Saturday with Blanka! The iconic mutated Brazilian with the ability to generate electricity is one of the game’s most iconic characters - and one of their earliest non-human ones. He debuted in Street Fighter II in 1992.

Furry Friday: Debuting on September 14, 1985 on CBS, the Wuzzles only lasted one season in comparison to their more popular compatriots, the Gummi Bears. But both were popular in their debut seasons - and over the years one of the major reasons cited for the Wuzzles’ cancellation has been the sudden death of Moosel’s voice actor Bill Scott (despite him voicing three characters on the Gummi Bears including Gruffi, Toadwart and Sir Tuxford). Moosel is the youngest of the Wuzzles and like all things on the Isle of Wuz is a combination of two animals - a moose and a seal. He’s friends with the prankster Rhinokey and suffers from an overactive imagination!

Furry Friday: Okay, so accident-prone Eleroo is a half elephant 🐘 and half kangaroo, which may explain his larger size - but where does his pouch come from? Only female kangaroos have pouches - unless Eleroo is transgender too! Bumblelion’s best friend who keeps forgetting what’s in his pouch was a bigger success in the UK, like all the Wuzzles, because their pilot was released theatrically as a short with a Bambi re-release and they aired alongside the Gummi Bears on ITV. There’s strength in numbers... Eleroo was voiced by Henry Gibson (1984, Hasbro) #toyboxing #hasbro #disney #waltdisney #disneyafternoon #thewuzzles #wuzzles #disneytelevisionanimation #isleofwuz #animation #cartoons #cartoon #saturdaymorningcartoons #disneychannel #vintage #vintagecartoons #vintagecartoon #michaeleisner #eleroo #henrygibson
Furry Friday: The object of Bumblelion’s affections, Butterbear is mostly bear 🐻 with a little bit of butterfly 🦋 and is known for being kind and gentle and loves to garden. Like all of the Wuzzles she was the brain child of then-Disney CEO Michael Eisner for his new Disney television animation studio. Along with the more successful Gummi Bears, the Wuzzles marked Disney’s return to television animation - ultimately leading to Disney Afternoon. Butterbear was voiced by Kathleen Helppie-Shipley (1984, Hasbro) #toyboxing #hasbro #disney #waltdisney #disneyafternoon #thewuzzles #wuzzles #disneytelevisionanimation #isleofwuz #animation #cartoons #cartoon #saturdaymorningcartoons #disneychannel #vintage #vintagecartoons #vintagecartoon #michaeleisner #butterbear #kathleenhelppieshipley
Wuzzle Wednesday: At the heart of the Wuzzles is a tragic love triangle: Hoppopotamus here has a crush on Bumblelion, but Bumblelion likes Butterbear. Sadly that Wuzzle sexual tension was never resolved in the 13 episodes that were made. Hoppopotamus here is a really tough diva who is called Hoppo by her friends. Half rabbit 🐇 , half hippopotamus, Hoppo was voiced by Jo Anne Worley (1984, Hasbro) #toyboxing #hasbro #disney #waltdisney #disneyafternoon #thewuzzles #wuzzles #disneytelevisionanimation #isleofwuz #animation #cartoons #cartoon #saturdaymorningcartoons #disneychannel #vintage #vintagecartoons #vintagecartoon #michaeleisner #hoppo #hoppopotamus #joanneworley
Wuzzle Wednesday: The prankster Rhinokey is a combination of a rhinoceros 🦏 and a monkey 🐒 - not quite sure why he’s pink and yellow though... He’s best friends with Moosel and voiced by the legendary Alan Oppenheimer (1984, Hasbro) #toyboxing #hasbro #disney #waltdisney #disneyafternoon #thewuzzles #wuzzles #disneytelevisionanimation #isleofwuz #animation #cartoons #cartoon #saturdaymorningcartoons #disneychannel #vintage #vintagecartoons #vintagecartoon #michaeleisner #rhinokey #alanoppenheimer
Wuzzle Wednesday: Bumblelion was kind of the leader of the Wuzzles, the best friend of Eleroo and had a massive crush on Butterbear. Like everyone and everything on the Land of Wuz he was a combination of two different things - in this case two different animal species: a lion 🦁 and a bee 🐝. He even lived in a hive.

Superhero Sunday: Yep. Superman III was the one with Richard Pryor and the evil supercomputer and that one really cool Bizarro-type scene... I’d argue it’s not as bad as you remember.

Thursday Throwdown on Kaiju Week with Zetton. One of the very first kaiju I ever owned was the beetle-like Zetton and for me he remains one of Ultraman’s greatest foes having almost killed the titular character in his final episode and revealing the existence of another Ultra Brother (Zoffy) in the attempt #toyboxing #kaiju #monstermovie #monstermovies #giantmonster #giantmonsters #sofubi #arttoys #godzillafan #godzillatoys #gameratoys #jetjaguar #vinyltoys #mechagodzilla #vintagerobots #tokusatsu #godzillakingofthemonsters #godzilla #godzillaseries #godzillamovie #japanesefilm #vintage #vintagetoys #vintagemonsters #vintagefilm #ultraman #ultraseven #zetton #zoffy
Thursday Throwdown on Kaiju Week with Red King, who originally appeared on Tatara Island where the magnetic field on the island was off balance, causing creatures to mutate into monsters...

Robot Wednesday on Kaiju Week with the awesome alien robot King Joe, created by the Alien Pedan and frequent foe of the Ultraman family (commencing with Ultraseven).

Giant Flying Turtle Tuesday on Kaiju Week with a bale of Gameras. They’re kind of like an all-kaiju version of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles aren’t they? And yes, a bale is one of the collective nouns for a group of turtles... see? Kaiju can be educational too...

Lion-Maru Monday on Kaiju Week with the eponymous Lion-Maru, the superpowered anthropomorphic lion transformation of the lead character, usually wielding a katana.

Mothra Monday on Kaiju Week with one of the few truly heroic - and female - kaiju, the colossal caterpillar/imago moth Mothra!

Supervillain Saturday: with Team Rocket’s Jessie (and Ekans)! “Prepare for trouble! And make it double! To protect the world from devastation! To unite all peoples within our nation! To denounce the evils of truth and love! To extend our reach to the stars above! Jessie! James! Team Rocket blasts off at the speed of light! Surrender now, or prepare to fight! Meowth!

Saturday Supervillains: “So come up to the lab... and see what’s on the slab!” And yes, Frank N. Further counts as a supervillain. In addition to indulging in forbidden science, kidnapping and loads of sex, he did hack up Meatloaf (Eddie) with an axe and serve him for dinner... so, you know, that’s pretty supervillainy... #toyboxing #franknfurter #rockyhorror #therockyhorrorpictureshow #cultfilms #cultclassics #musicals #timcurry #therockyhorrorshow #classicmusicals #vintage #vintagetoys #vintagemovies

Flashback Friday: Who else is excited by the news out of #sdcc2018 of a new #gobots comic? Certain to be a part of the fun is not-quite-Megatron, Cy-Kill, leader of the Evil Renegades, a splinter group of the Guardians who did not believe in democracy. He is the primary antagonist of Hanna Barbera's Challenge of the Gobots cartoon, memorably voiced by Deathstalker's Bernard Erhard. Adapted from Bandai's Machine Robo toyline, as his red, white and blue colour scheme suggests, Bike Robo was originally a heroic character! Tonka, however, decided to make him a villain, even providing a more evil black and green redeco in the toy line's final year. Though it’s hard not to be evil when you have 'Kill' as part of your name...

Film Friday: depending on your age the best thing about Saturn 3 was Farrah Fawcett or the cover star of this adaptation: Hector, a partially dismembered “Demigod Series" robot who relies on "pure brain tissue" extracted from human fetuses and is programmed using a direct link to a human brain - which leads him to becoming increasingly enamoured of Ms Fawcett. Think Alien with a randy robot. 1980 British SF horror by Stanley Donen, also starring Kirk Douglas, Harvey Keitel and later Keitel’s decapitated head. The screenplay was written by Martin Amis, from a story by John Barry and adapted here by Steve Gallagher (1980) #bookcover #bookcoverdesign #bookstagram #bookcasing #toyboxing #saturn3 #hector #itc #stevegallagher #johnbarry #martinamis #kirkdouglas #farrahfawcett #harveykeitel #stanleydonen #vintage #vintagebooks #vintagefilm #sfmovie #horrormovies #alien #robot #robots

Leading with a back cover rather than a front cover this time - swipe for the front - but the design and art on Robert Sheckley’s Live Gold are too good not to share.
